Publisher's Summary

The entire epic fantasy trilogy in one volume and now including the totally restructured and revised book one, Sword of the Archon.

Plague strikes the city of Sarum, and the dead rise from their graves. The liche, Dr. Cadman, has discovered a long-hidden artifact and perverted its power for his own selfish ends. But an ancient evil from beyond the stars is drawn by its use and turns hungry eyes upon the Earth. These are the times of Unweaving, the times Deacon Shader has been prepared for since the day he was born. A man of prayer, deeply troubled by a contradictory faith, he is also the deadliest warrior of his generation. As events spiral out of control and creation itself hangs by a thread, the paradox at the heart of Shader's life may just be the last desperate hope of all the worlds.

    "just not my kind of book"

    i can't put my finger on it, but this one just doesn't do it for me. after 28 chapters, of which i slept through more than half of, i had to quit trying. the narrator isn't bad, the story could have been engaging, but it wasn't. this is my favorite genre, so that isn't the problem...but nothing about it held my attention.

    "Make Me Care"

    If I don't actively like at least one of the point of view characters, I won't like the book. The quickest way to make me walk away from a story is to ask me to spend a lot of time following the point of view of a character I actively dislike. And I discovered while trying to read the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, that if you ever ask me to identify with the point of view of a rapist, I don't care what he thinks his excuse is, I will drop your book cold.

    The first point-of-view character in this story was vaguely likable, but he was soon left behind to follow the point of view of a series of truly despicable characters. Spoiler alert: it was while following the third of these characters that I dropped the book cold.

    Clearly, the author put a lot of time and thought into his world building. He cared a lot about his setting. But he didn't put any effort into making me care about the people in it.

    "what a load of shite"

    just a diatribe of nonsensical garbage with a very weak story... made it a couple of hours in but cannot recommend unless you want to be bored to sleep!
